Optional Features

I'm having a bit of a rough time accepting the notion of paying extra for options that are already programmed into the electronics and the running.

Things like:
1. Decel slip control
2. Roll back braking
3. Self cancel turning signals

I suppose the auto folks have been doing this for a number of years now. It just seems a little wrong to pay extra to turn on stuff that arguably makes the bike safer. Hmmm.

I did not even know self cancelling turn signals were even an option, I do think that eventually someone will have a crack on the programming so I would not pay for those things, they will come along for free soon enough as long as they are not actually different parts.

My guess is a slipper clutch.

But considering that an anti-hop (their words) clutch is standard, maybe this is some sort of secondary electronic aid?

The roll-back braking is cool, especially if you're full loaded and dealing with hills or obstacles off road

Deceleration control keeps throttle chops from locking the rear tire by adding just enough throttle to prevent. Electronic. Slipper clutch is standard.

slip control is standard feature here, part of the motorbike traction control. I am interested in the turn signal cancel, the hill thing is just another nanny. For sure to be free soon once a hacker biker figures it out, like the old 990's, we have the same cable to hook up to the ECU, just time until someone cracks the program.
